I urge anyone who has a share portfolio in nominee accounts or in an ISA or SIPP (which must by law be held in nominee accounts) to read this thread about the bankruptcy of Beaufort Securities: Rather than being ring-fenced, it seems that such a portfolio is at risk of losing 40% of its value over £50,000 if the provider of the nominee accounts…

Woodford's funds own 15.9% of Kier, according to this article: As Woodford's funds have to sell stocks they own in order to raise money for redemptions by their holders, this might put further downward pressure on Kier's share price.

According to the FT article, Woodford has invested a total of 54 million pounds of his fund holder's money in a company developing a 'cold fusion' device.
